Life with three kids.
It’s proving to be a little more hectic than I expected.
I need to download…..
Something has always gotta give……
What will it be today? ….. will I get a shower? Will I manage to eat breakfast? Will my daughter actually brush her teeth or get changed out of her PJ’s today?
How is it I did three loads yesterday and today my daughter has no clean undies left to wear!!?
“But mummy! I emptied the dishwasher and filled it yesterday!” followed by dramatic cry, arms flailing, feet stomping and body flopping on the couch.
….Honestly, sometimes I wish I could join my son in his cry of “Life’s not fair!!!”
I know you’re out there somewhere. But I miss you! I am stuck in this frantic home bubble. More laundry, more dishes, more bodies to clean and feed…again and again…and again. I think we are perhaps all feeling a bit the same way. We’ll see each other soon I hope. I am thinking of you! And praying for you!
Always more mess.
It laughs at me.
I can’t think with all this mess!
….I search for you each day to no prevail.
That is about all I have the capacity for in this moment.
I miss you.
I hate this.
I need to remember you more.
Thank you for being with me anyway.
I love you.
It’s funny how life ebbs and flows, each year presenting new challenges and opportunities. A year and a half ago I felt on top if the world. Ready to take life by the horns and bend it to my will. I even got the motivational mug to help me on my way! Lol.
I have come to like having a mug to pour my tea into each day that can remind me of things and this mug was helpful for a time.
But I REALLY don’t like this mug anymore.
My life has changed. It’s a different season
I can’t face that mug anymore.
It’s all too hard.
There is so much I wish I was doing but I am not.
One day the season of life will change again.
But just for now I have a new favourite mug and this is what it says:
“The Lords mercies are new
Yes Lord, I need your mercy AGAIN today.
Be with me please.
Help me make it through.
May there be even just a moment of peace with you this day.
I am so glad you still walk with me and we navigate this life together.
Give me the capacity to smile and find joy through the rush of this day.
Help me know which few things on my “to do” list ARE actually achievable today.
And may I have the humility and wisdom to let go of the rest for another day.
How are you feeling today? Can you relate?
Do you have a mug that helps you remember or bring you comfort?
